I'll second this.

It doesn't dissolve plastic at all, and a quick spray followed by an air dry is an effective contact sanitizer. It doesn't require rinsing afterwards. It's basically just a strong acid.

I use cheapo small plastic bottles from REI, kind of like shampoo with the little flip up tip for drops. I put it in a plastic bag, with a bit of paper towel in case there are ever leaks. I keep it in the camping kitchen, never had a problem. Or get the 1 qt bleach bottles that are made to hold it, but way more than you will ever need.

Quats are one of the other options to have a sanitizing rinse. Quaternary ammonium comes in tablets, so it's like having a vitamin bottle for your dishes. And, like bleach, it's health dept. approved! (Cause I just had to take my food handlers again...) is offline   Reply With Quote

Powdered bleach

I use powdered bleach for pools you only need about 1/8 of a tsp or less. I put in a small nalgene container you need so little a small container lasts a long time. The nalgene will become fragile but it takes several years. Just replace it every couple years. Nice no fuss, muss or leakage along the cap.

I Filled an aluminum water bottle with bleach and it ate away the stopper. I don't trust the bottles that bleach comes in and don't like them in my dry box.[/QUOTE]

Always put bleach into a 16oz Gatorade bottle. Never a problem. Carry two in case one leaks. I even got to drink the Gatorade first!
